Can we bring back Sun Day (May 3)?
#bikepunk; mutual aid; disaster relief
Bicycle-powered relief efforts are environmentally friendly and easy to replicate and don’t require highly skilled cyclists as Green Map notes in its Bike Ready guide: Even walking bikes loaded with supplies can be helpful in an emergency.

I'm a white settler living on stolen Multnomah and Chinook land.
I see ya'll getting harassed on here so I am ready to help collect my settler kin. My DMs are open if you need help telling wp to sit down.
And please please please call me out on my white bullshit when you see it. I know I have a lot to decolonize still and I'm willing to do that hard work.
If you are a newly out trans person (or questioning) and a loved one is asking you to not transition for x amount of time for either ambiguous reasons, or reasons related to their own goals and not your happiness, then I have something to tell you.
That's abuse. You're being abused.
You deserve all the happiness in the world and no one should ever dim your shine. My DMs are open to you. ❤️
Light In The Attic Records are putting out Nancy Sinatra's "Boots" and in the process have restored the 1966(!!) music video(!!!!) of "These Boots Are Made For Walking" in HD and put it on youtube.
Why is there a music video for a song released 15 years before music videos became a thing?
Because of THIS: the Scopitone, a jukebox that would play a 16mm film clip paired with the 45 that queued up.
today's sketch wondering if the big pterodactyls curled their necks up like herons (don't think the bones could of supported that but it's a nice thought)
I've seen so many close friends succumb to this: they see others in tech do Wrong, see rhetoric that simplifies things to "tech == bad", & decide they're bad for enjoying doing stuff w/ computers.
Put work into being ethical; but don't martyr yourself.
You deserve to be happy.
